Hello everyone, this is my first time growing anything. After months of research - I soaked some seeds. That was 16 days back. I’ve since almost killed my plants 3 times. They’ve been stable for the last 3-4 days now. I’m debating if they’re ready for fimming.
My main concerns are the height of the plant. I was expecting faster growth. And also the strength of the main stem. The plants tend to keel over if the clay pebbles are moved. But I’m thinking this might be normal? I do have a fan in the tent for circulation. The strain of this plant is Moby Dick.
I’ve been monitoring my grow and here are my Day/Night values:
CO2: 400-900 ppm (my unit does not measure values under 400 ppm - and it is at that level often)
I’ve been pumping fresh air into my tent only a few times a day - and notice that the CO2 levels drop quickly when the tent is shut. I realize that the plants are probably lacking oxygen as well.
The problem is that every time I pump fresh air into my tent - it drops the humidity level. And if I add a CO2 system to my setup - I’m expecting a drop there as well. So I’m hoping for some tips on how to add fresh air to my tent.
Is it better to:
a: Pump in fresh air only once every 60 minutes
b: Not worry about humidity dropping to 45%, slightly lower temps, and natural CO2. So pump in lots of fresh air.
I’m thinking this must be a common problem - and would appreciate any pointers.
